Will we always be pretending?
Listen to the world around you
The wind whispering to you
The purple constellations shouting down at you
Pulling you in to join them
Run your fingers over the smooth earth
Feel it crumble so easily in your hands
See, if you were up in the sky,
It’d be rock solid.
Nothing can disappoint you there,
Nothing can kill you there.
You can tear down all the walls,
Have a happy ending.
Find your place in life,
Let the gathering dust sparkle on your skin
Let the dark envelope you in your own paradise
Live eternally, released forever
Your wings escaped the bronze cage,
Get cozy, you won’t be going anywhere
No, now that I’m limitless,
I can do whatever I want,
And no one can drag me down again.
If you look to the stars,
Just breathe in and remember,
What it’s like to be free.
